Day by Day

  1. ARRIVE IN MADRID, SPAIN.
    Bienvenidos! Time to start exploring Madrid-made easy with your CosmosGO app. Choose a local restaurante, an authentic tapas bar near your hotel, or visit one of Madrid's many world-class museums. Your Tour Director is available in the early evening to give you expert suggestions on the best ways to enjoy the city.

  2. MADRID.
    This morning, feel free to join our optional walking tour of the city centre with a local guide-an insightful introduction to local history and culture, followed by a visit of the Prado Museum. Go off the beaten path with a visit to one of several UNESCO World Heritage Sites surrounding Madrid: San Lorenzo del Escorial, Alcala de Henares, Aranjuez, or the beautiful Hayedo de Montejo area. Optional excursions are easy to schedule on MyACCOUNT. (B)

  3. MADRID - SEGOVIA - AVILA - SALAMANCA.
    Discover Segovia with its fairy tale fortress, an inspiration for Disney's Sleeping Beauty's castle, or see the Cathedral and soaring Roman aqueduct. In Avila, one of the best preserved medieval bastions, we'll provide you with the tickets to walk on the Avila city walls allowing you to see the city centre from above, a rare experience in many European cities. After arriving in Salamanca, spend the evening at leisure discovering the city. You might choose to have an intimate evening out to dine on Salamanca specialties. Your Tour Director is happy to recommend favourite eateries. (B)

  4. EXPLORE SALAMANCA.
    If you are a foodie, be sure to book in advance the exclusive optional cooking class in a real castle, as space is limited.

  5. SALAMANCA - VALLADOLID - BURGOS.
    Valladolid is a provincial city with a lively character, thanks in part to the student population of the local university.

  6. BURGOS.
    Tour the city of Burgos at your own pace-from its majestic gothic cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to the banks of the beautiful Duoro River.

Departures marked are guaranteed to operate.

Where "GD" appears next to a departure, the itinerary is a “Guaranteed Departure” and therefore guaranteed to operate. Tours without the “GD” indicator are still planned to operate, however may be subject to rescheduling. Many factors determine whether a departure becomes guaranteed. Ask your travel agent for advice on the best option for you.

PLEASE NOTE: This guarantee does not apply in any situation where the safety of clients is at potential risk or in the case of global health warnings; or when the operation of a tour is not possible for reasons beyond our control (such as industrial action/strikes and operational restrictions); or a Force Majeure event.

A Force Majeure event is an inevitable or unpredictable event including fire, flood, earthquake, storm, hurricane (or other natural disaster), act of war, invasion, act of foreign enemies, hostilities (regardless of whether war is declared), civil war, rebellion, revolution, insurrection, military or usurped power or confiscation, terrorist activities, nationalisation, government sanction, political unrest, blockage, embargo, labour dispute or strike.
